I love this round up! Thank you for putting it together- many of these I have read but a few I haven't yet. 😉
Thanks! I love posts like this too, so I hoped our readers would enjoy it as well. And by the way, if we did a greatest hits of guest bloggers, you'd definitely be on that album! 😉

It's on my bucket list to visit the Middle East! Would love to go.
